Refuge

By: Janet Paisley

Refuge

By: Janet Paisley

Directed by: Gerda Stevenson

A dramatic and provocative play about the lives of five women and a teenage boy seeking sanctuary in a women’s refuge, written in response to the closure of safe houses in Falkirk. Refuge weaves together the lives of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. It is powerfully moving, disturbing, and, at times, achingly funny. It’s a story about what happens when refuge is not a place, but a way of life.

Stellar Quines commissioned Janet Paisley to write Refuge (her first full-length play) in 1995.  In 1996, Refuge won the Peggy Ramsay Award for the development of new writing.
